Beginning today, TQS will now be featuring quilts exhibited in 2019 at the Houston International Quilt Festival as part of their 45th Anniversary, the Sapphire Anniversary. The Sapphire Celebration exhibit is described as:
"Quilters have long used the color blue to symbolize trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, truth, and heaven. Sapphire is also the chosen gem to celebrate 45th anniversaries—which International Quilt Festival is doing this year (2019)! These new and antique blue and white quilts will be suspended from the ceiling in a spectacular and unforgettable display."
To be a part of the exhibit, quilts had to fit the following criteria:
- Entries may be Traditional, Modern or Art.
- Entries must have been made between 1974 and 2019.
- The minimum size is 50” x 50”
Please enjoy the first quilt from the exhibition by Gail Smith, quilted by Angela McCorkle.
